Cortana reminder shows up in Bing, nowhere else. How to delete?

A while ago, I believe I set a reminder in Cortana's notebook. The reminder occurs every day at 1PM, but I am not sure how to get rid of it. When asked, Cortana doesn't seem to think there are any reminders set (below).

I looked though my outlook tasks and events on all accounts that I am signed in with and could not find it. I do not see it in the To Do app or the Calendar app.
Curiously, it does show up on Bing:

But this says noon for some reason? I am signed into the same account in Bing here as in the Cortana app and Windows.
My guess is that Cortana's notebook is still distributing a reminder for temporarily compatibility with older versions of Cortana, but since it has been removed, I cannot find a way to manage it's data on the Bing or Microsoft account sites anywhere.

The notification shows up on my laptop as well, which is signed in with the same account to Cortana, and much newer than this reminder.

The option in the app to "reset" my data, as well as signing out/back in did not work. Several posts I tried for uninstalling/reinstalling Cortana also did not resolve the issue.

Anything I'm missing? A big red X on some phantasmic reminders.bing.com, or the like?

Not issue related - I considered posting on tenforums, but opted for here since I am currently using Windows 11 Insiders. I don't expect that this is an issue particular to Windows, though. Is that OK?

Yet another app (along with Bing) that just needs a one button uninstall.....

Haven't had any trouble with removing Cortana, but that was not my goal. Only wanted to get rid of this one reminder, and keep the ability to use Cortana for other reminders.

I don't have an answer for you, but I would suggest you post to the site of your OS. Windows 11 is till in beta form and a lot of things have changed between 10 & 11. If you're running Windows 10, go to ten forums :)

Good luck :)
